Can a USB wifi client be used as a client to the 751u when connected to the USB port. My Ubuiquiti WifiStation is recognized by the port but I have not been able to find information on setting up an interface for the device or if it is possible to use the USB port for this.

Thanks for the response. I have started with the router set to its default configuration then exported the configuration and attempted to modify it to change the wan port from ether1 to ether5. The modified configuration is below. # jan/02/1970 00:03:08 by RouterOS 6.4 # software id = 1BFG-7R5L # /i...

RB951ui change WAN port from port 1 to port 5 in AP mode

I have an RB951ui-2hnd running rOS 6.4 and would like to change WAN port from the default port 1 to port 5 and use the POE pass through feature to run a Groove 52hpn CPE.

I'm new to routeros and Mikrotik and would appreciate any pointers on how this can be done either in the Webfig or by script.
